I just got this book and read it over the weekend. It is by leaps and bounds the most comprehensive book on the subject of image transfer. It contains all that the others on this topic contain and much, much more. I especially like the trouble shooting suggestions they include on every topic like "why is my image not transferring." I wish it had come out years ago. The artist seem to prefer Golden Acrylic products, but many other brands and products are also covered, particularly where they have a specific niche.

This is just what I have been waiting for: a one-stop, comprehensive resource for all my transfer needs & questions. It will be the ONLY book you'll require to create your own sensational work. The book features ample color photographs, step-by-step instructions & an all-important "troubleshooting" section after each technique. A must have for the mixed media artist.

Wow. WOW.

Transfers are a tricky lot. Transfers can be frustrating. One method can produce a perfect transfer once...then never seem to work again. Failed transfers have resulted in many of my pieces being trashed. Even though they are temperamental - and seem to be for everyone - Darlene Olivia McElroy and Sandra Duran Wilson have broken the mold and tamed the wicked ways of transfers. Or at least explained how to make them behave for artists.

With all the problems one encounters while attempting transfers, it's amazing more artists just don't give up. I personally know of many who have. Enter the authors of this book...and your success rate could dramatically rise. Into the stratosphere. You can easily go from hating transfers and not using them - at all...ever - to using them on everything standing still. This book makes that much of a difference.

There are tons of methods depicted. An example of each method is demonstrated in a piece by one of the talented authors. My favorite part? The "Troubleshooting" section. Even with the excellent guidance of these Transfer Divas, you will have transfers go awry. Why? They will explain possible reasons - and then give you solutions! (Can you hear the trumpets sounding?) These gals lay out the necessary supplies, give explicit directions, do incredible step outs, tell you the archival quality of each method, troubleshoot problems, and give you ideas on recommended substrates. What more could you want...seriously??

The Transfer Divas (which is what I've renamed these ladies) even have a section in the back about where to purchase supplies. Schwing! The instructions are simple and doable - and it's exciting to know transfers are actually possible.

Whenever I see a new book come out on my favorite technique, image transfers, I simply cannot restrain my fingers from hitting the "buy me now" button. Once in awhile I am disappointed but sometimes I am also totally, unabashedly, thrilled with a book. This book, "Image Transfer Workshop", looked like it was right up my alley and it is ! I LOVE this book. It explores so many different techniques and presents them so well that I would venture to say that this is a "must have" book for anyone who has an interest in image transfers, mixed media, or art quilting. I think it is one of the best books on this subject to come down the proverbial pike in a long time. "Transfers & Altered Images" by Chris Cozen is still a favorite book but is a bit more technique focused because Ms. Cozen is an artist for Golden Paints. Golden Paints are my favorite products to use but it is good to have a book that covers ALL manner of image transfer techniques. This book does that and does it very admirably.The variety of techniques covered in the book is phenomenal . It's a fabulous resource and I think, should be in the library of any mixed media artist! 5 stars on this one ! Highly recommended!

Image Transfer Workshop has plenty of good ideas for artmaking. The only complaint I have about the book, is it has limited information about applying image transfers to printmaking plates. It does speak about intaglio, and screenprinting mathods, but the information is brief. I was hoping to fing information about transfering images to lithographic stones or plates, but there is none.

However, there are lots of really useful methods for collage and mixed media artists. Although some of the techniques mentioned are similar they do specify clearly the differences and suitable applications. I have not had a chance to apply any of the methods from the book yet, so experienced based review is not an option. But the book is clearly written, step by step, and frequently includes trouble shooting tips, which is absolutely neccessary for this type of work.

A good read, good technical advice and instruction, reccomend for begginning printmakers, collage artists, craft artists, experimantal photographers, and mixed media artists.
